2020 Yamaha Tracer 700 unveiled – perfect for India?

The new Yamaha Tracer 700 is the bike for riders who want thrilling sports performance with all round versatility and a serious bit of attitude. Featuring completely new bodywork and an aggressive new face, the new 2020 Yamaha Tracer 700 is the kind of machine that really can go almost anywhere whether near or far, in the city or on the open road.

Featuring twin slant-eye LED position lights and powerful twin LED projector headlights, the Tracer 700 comes with a modern and aggressive new look that has a whole lot more attitude than any other bike in the class.

The compact and lightweight layered fairing emphasises the dynamic stance of this new sport tourer to give it a much more edgy and predatory feel. Blending seamlessly into the fuel tank cover, this compact and aerodynamic fairing offers plenty of wind and weather protection for improved long-distance comfort. The newly designed front fender follows this new design direction aswell.

The new 2020 Yamaha Tracer 700 is powered by Yamaha’s formidable 689cc, 2-cylinder crossplane concept engine, one of the most successful and best-loved powerplants that the company has ever produced. What makes this engine so special is its 270 degree crank that gives an uneven firing sequence, enabling the engine to deliver strong linear torque that responds directly to the rider’s throttle input.

For 2020 this engine is updated with optimised fuel injection and ignition settings, revised air intake, optimised exhaust settings and a modified exhaust system that enable this ultra-reliable powerplant to exceed EU5 standards.

Delivering maximum power of 73.77 HP at 8750 rpm with maximum torque of 68 Nm at 6500 rpm, the Tracer 700’s engine gives the most thrilling, sporty and emotional riding experience. The wide band of linear torque ensures strong acceleration through the rpm band, and with a revised secondary gear ratio the 2020 model is even more exciting and responsive when charging through the 6-speed transmission.

Featuring a lightweight tubular frame and equipped with a long aluminium swingarm that gives a 1,460 mm wheelbase, the Tracer 700’s compact chassis make this one of the most agile and exciting sport tourers. It has the lowest wet weight in the class of just 196 kg.

The new model is equipped with uprated 41 mm cartridge-type front forks. The spring rate has been adjusted in order to optimise the roadholding characteristics, and the 2020 model is equipped with preload and rebound damping adjusters. Together with the preload and rebound-adjustable rear shock, the bike is easy to set up to suit different rider weights and riding conditions and achieve the best balance of comfort and control.

The 2020 Tracer 700 is fitted with a slim new aerodynamic screen with a higher optical quality that complements the aggressive new face and lightweight fairing. Using just one hand, screen height can be adjusted by over 60 mm to reduce wind buffeting for improved comfort at higher speeds – and redesigned handguards give added wind and weather protection.

The Tracer 700 is a well-equipped sport tourer that is built to go the full distance, and in order to give a more commanding riding position that complements the new fairing the new model features 34mm wider handlebars with an accessory bridge. Together with the new seat design, the new handlebar enhances the ergonomics to give improved long-distance comfort and controllability.
